you're ahead, don't rock the boat. but he did try to pin mitt romney down on specifics. >> he says that he's going to close deductions and loopholes for his tax plan. that's how it's going to be paid for but we don't know the details. he says that he's going to replace dot frank, wall street reform, but we don't know exactly which ones. he won't tell us. he now says he's going to replace obama care. at some point i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they are too good? is it because somehow middle class families are going to benefit too much from them? >> let me bring in nick khristoff. let me read one of your many tweets last night, nick. obama is such a gifted speaker but tonight he seemed passive, distracted and defensive. what happened? >> i mean n a word, he blew it. it is not the same as blowing a campaign. i think part of it was expectations and romney did much better than expectations. but beyond that, he let romney get away with accusing him of being the one who is undecid
mitt romney is down in the race but he's still got a chance. only down 3 points nationally in the journal/nbc poll. in key swing points he's pulling even in florida, down 1, closer in virginia, down 2, he's still down by 8 percentage points in our poll in the state of ohio, which is a problem for this reason. look at the map of swing states. if you look at the ones where mitt romney is running within 4 points of president obama, places like florida, virginia, iowa, missouri where he's ahead, north carolina where he's even or ahead, you add all those to the solid states for mitt montana and the leaning states for mitt romney, he's still only at 263 electorate votes. he needs to bring ohio or other swe swing state, nevada, new hampshire. he's got an unparallel opportunity tonight to come on stage with the president of the united states and make his case, larry. >> john, the wall street journal poll and others have shown that romney has closed the gap a little pit with president obama at least nationwide and some of the swing states. to what do you attribute this closi closing
was that mitt romney won the debate. and tingle up his leg hearing obama speak he was in such a melt down he it is tangled run the leg because he wet his pants. some of the excuses for the president not being much better than the empty chair that clint east wood revealed . al gore thought it was thaltitude of denver. i think the former vice president may have been a little high. but another ridiculous made on another net work and he with a straight face suggests that obama didn't debate well because he was black. what after geth elected as president of the united states and serving four years bark obama walked out on the stage and said i am black, i can't take on the white guy. whether in sports or music or acting some days you don't have the juice. we squeezed out what we could and i will offer my humble and accurate assessment of the efirst of all mitt romney countering what the obama came pair is saying about his tax proposal. >> i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true ask keep - and keep on repeating it and hope i believe it >> this was brilliant
at and is there a trap door somewhere down there? he could have used it and anyway quite a moment. romney set the debate high. can he stay on top in the next phase off. joining me is former communication's director from michelle bachmann alec stewart and former new york mayor rudy guiliani and former speech writer for president bush michael gersin. >> thank you . you were back in the spin room. what was different in person than what we saw on tv? >> i think, i think it was a knock out punch and actually what i saw on television and what we saw live, i thought it was the same thing. i am shocked could come out with other opinion. it was a knock out. when you remove the teleprompters and a panel of liberal press that can back up the president, he's lost. the emperor has no clothes and that was apparent in the audience and in television. >> that is true . people don't realize what you have said up until now. you are not using the teleprompter and speaking from your heart. >> that's why i mess up a lot. >> that is he didn't have the basic knowledge or facts and unable to defend his record and there was a se
of the means that's had a real impact on this campaign is the war on women mean. we see mitt romney down by 25 points in ohio still. massive gender gap persisting. that was a conversation that really started on twitter and filtered into -- >> it's a common hash tag today, war on women. >> if you're not following the right people on twitter, you won't have the best twitter experience. who who are you supposed to follow? who should be your twitter buddies swld @toure swld @toure, @secupp, @krystal ball1. >> anna marie cox, the fix's chris, markos, the king of snark, and luke russert, and we add the nate cohn at the bottom. you have to follow him, too. steve, what have you got? >> yeah, well, you know, my favorite twitter was probably the romney zingers. there were fun ones over the weekend. we had fun ones on the show yesterday. and i think the picture of krystal is my favorite one. i think krystal mentioned this yesterday how twitter changed the real-time events, we have a more dramatic and serious example of it from this campaign, and that was paul ryan's acceptance speech at the republican co
for the republican candidate. >> mitt romney went down well with the audience. >> if there's one thing we have learned this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> what words would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think you know the debates are very important. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's gonna double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is because the median income is as low as 1995. until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit. i doubled the earned income tax credit. it was signed under the tax credit. reagan started it. we started it with a strong support of republicans in congress. president bush dealt with that, then president obama increased the earned income tax credit for families with more than three children. this is a rej
? >> not on this, i don't. >> what he could say to mitt romney? >> if he's going double down on the 47% remark, it will cause difficulties. we know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. >> president obama and the economy. how is he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy? >> it's not a normal thing. >> the extraordinary work of a clinton initiative. >> keep pushing the rocks up the hill. >> big ideas from the big names. dee pock chopra, things get lively at the global initiative. you want to make farming sexy, don't you? this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> mr. president, thank you very much for sparing the time to talk to me. you are in the eighth year now, of the clinton global initiative. i would imagine all the world leaders you managed to amass here, there are a few topics of concentrated attention. probably right at the top of the list would be this simmering tension between israel and iran. now, i interviewed president ahmadinejad last night and he was adamant that he has no plan to build a nuclear weapon, that he has purely peaceful inten
soon. goch gov mitt romney we'll go down in florida, a rally in the battle ground state. let's watch and listen . (crowd noise) approximate [applause] >> thank you. [applause] >> you warm my heart, i have to tell you. what an honor for us to be here with you this evening. how it humbles us to see so many people come out and care about our country so deeply that you spend your evening with ann and me. i brought someone special with me. you can tell. this is a young lady who went to the same elementary school i . i didn't notice her then and when we got to high school and she was 16, we went to a party together, she was with someone else and i decided they wanted to take her home with me and take her rather. that was latter. and i said to the guy she came to the party with. i live closer to ann than you do. can i give her a ride home and she said sure . and we have gone steady every since. my sweet heart, ann romney. [applause] >> wow! what a crowd. this is so as mitt said humbling to see so many people come out and believe in america . we believe in america. [applause] i think back of
calling mitt romney the winner. trickle-down government. i wonder what lou will say about that. lori: he has been wanting him to step out and drop the gloves. a lot of people saying he did that last night. we will also talk about retail sales. find out about these winners and losers. what stores are stocking up to grab your dollar as well. hope you like corduroys. melissa: not so much. elizabeth macdonald is at the rock 'n roll hall of fame in cleveland. she will be talking with mayor frank jackson. she will also be talking to joe roman. cleveland is open for business and we are there. lori: baseball fans, probably not a shock here, the boston red sox have fired their manager, bobby valentine. they had 93 losses last season. they finished dead last. melissa: it was a tough little series here in new york. lori: no surprise, but, boy, you just get one. to prove yourself. melissa: let's head to the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole: we are looking at a market that has had up arrows. the dow jones industrials are up. it has pulled back a little bit. the truth of the matter is, we
and governor romney hunker down to prep for wednesday's big night, the candidates lower expectations by heaping praise on each other. we will entertain campaign bizarre world. >>> money boo boo, details on the latest cash dash and the new ad that puts lbj's daisy to shame. and mike check on jfk. we'll listen to newly released audiotapes that show kennedy's real views on the civil rights movement, cuban missile crisis and george romney. all of that when "now" starts in a mere 180 seconds. want to try to crack it? yeah, that's the way to do it! now we need a little bit more... a little bit more vanilla? this is great! [ male announcer ] at humana, we believe there's never been a better time to share your passions... because the results... are you having fun doing this? yeah. that's a very nice cake! [ male announcer ] well, you can't beat them. [ giggles ] ohh! you got something huh? whoa... [ male announcer ] humana understands the value of spending time together that's a lot of work getting that one in! let's go see the birdies. [ male announcer ] one on one, sharing what you know. l
tries to put down mitt romney's faith, which i just don't really understand why he's doing that. >> mike: congressman, if hopens get into mitt romney's faith and where he goes to church, does not that open the door for us to go back and revisit reverend jeremiah wright and all of the aspects of president obama's faith? >> you know, in my opinion, i don't think so. i think we've litigated that issue, we know where barack obama was for 20 years at church. he keeps hiding what he was, but the born thing is that mitt romney actually has policies that are going to be better for america than barack obama. barack obama has a record of four years of failure. mitt romney has a lifetime of success. and i think that's what this election is going to be about. and i think it's totally inappropriate for harry reid or any other person in the democratic party to bring up mitt romney's faith. and i don't think we should play that game on our side. >> mike: well, let me say congressman, you look pretty normal to me. two of my very favorite public servants in the world, michael leavitt, a dear, dear friend
and manufacturing and reducing the deficit, or that top-down approach mitt romney's for. the target was the undecided voter tuning in in the suburbs of denver, sitting on the couch with their family to the campaign for the first time. i think he really reached those voters tonight. neil: all right, ben, you know the president better than i do. he appeared to a lot of people here to have been flustered or annoyed even by some of the attack lines of mitt romney whether he thought romney was selling lies or half truths, whatever. it get under his skin. it feeds a narrative, and maybe you can address this, that the president has a thin skin, and if you get under it, you got a cornucopia. what do you say? >> i don't think that's the case at all, neil. i think that the president is as cool as they come. he certainly was in the debate stage tonight speaking directly to the american people, and not interested in any punches from his opponent, but laying out the choice in the election and his plans. really speaking past the cameras directly to the millions of americans watching across the co
director. emily, you look at the polls and it appears that governor romney is way down when it comes to women especially single women. you not about to be swayed toward the romney catch, but if you were, what do you want to hear the governor talk about? >>guest: well, the way governor romney will portray himself is what he is messaging. president obama is coming through with an honest conversation for the american people, another opportunity for a conversation. the president did it at convention and will do it tomorrow night. from governor romney, the only final we saw him be honest is as you mentioned, 37 percent, 47 percent, he doesn't believe he needs to represent 47 percent of the american people. if i were the working mother, and i was part of the 47 percent, if i was a student as a single mother, as a single women, or deployed veteran, that is part of the 47 percent, i would not believe he is there to represent me. >>trace: the president says, sherry, on the specific faces, he is an average debater, and we know he is a good debater. the question is, does he have enough ammuniti
in the polls. the romney camp plays down expectations for next week's debate. some predictions. welcome to "the willis report." but, everybody. i'm lori rothman in for gerri willis perry the recovery is flat lining. the jobless rate has been about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, ta
and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for public broadcasting, $8 million of that going to, that's right, sesame workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with
shot whence the president was looking down auchbd and romney looked more energetic. we see that here. that, i think, with the focus on the body of the debate changed the way you looked at. i was more focused on what they were saying. >> you're such a purist, listening to what they say. that's adorable. the other stuff, the body language, how they interact, what they call each other, all that feeds into it. "saturday night live" which i know you're interesting in it all feeds into this massive perception that it's a huge fail. >> i'm going to be old fashioned and hang on to that. warning, we're about to get into substance of an exchange between mitt romney and barack obama about the tax plan which obama characterized as being $5 trillion and not being fully paid for. let's watch. >> when you add all the loopholes an deductions that upper level individuals are taking advantage of, you don't come close to paying if for $5 trillion in tax cuts 257b8d trillion in additional military spending. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know you keep saying that but i
your fiber. >>> forget about barack obama and mitt romney. there was another smack down. a pay-per-view for charity. i'm talking, of course, about the debate between jon stewart and bill oh riley? i think that fox news is an overreaction to what may be a patina of people that believe in -- in other words i don't think abc and nbc and cbs are activist organizations for liberal causes. i think fox looks at those organizations and they're sort of an autoimmune disease against that. >> i see you make more than a billion dollars a year. >> what were these television talkers trying to accomplish? joining me here, are you going go out on a limb and declare a winner? >> this sounds like a copout but i think they both came out ahead. they both, think, very much held their own and proved that they're very good at this. >> this was very heavily promoted. >> yes. >> did it live up to the hype? when they were standing up at the podiums, it felt a little strange to me. i didn't think either one of them held up like they do in their program sthoos they like each other, so they're not out to r
agree romney crushed in the debate but will it add up to votes? karl rove here to break it down. >>> money tonight, gas shortage in california. prices skyrocket. stations close. will it spread across the country? we have details. >>> i'm getting serious about the saving the post office. i'm the turnaround specialist who can avoid a $11 billion default. i'm offering my services to the postmaster general. he is here in a fox business exclusive. even when they say it's not you know it is always about money. melissa: first let's take a look at the market headlines. all three major indices close in the green. all 10 sectors in the s&p finished on the plus side for a fourth straight day of gains. cisco names new number two. gary moore named president and chief operating officer. ceo john chambers says he will stay in his position between two and four more years. jobless claims rose slightly this week, climbing by 4,000 to 367,000. we're all going to be watching tomorrow morning when the government releases its monthly unemployment numbers for september. that is a big one. don't miss i
far to turn back now. >> you heard the president. it's no day to talk down the economy to score political points. but shadowing the president in virginia, mitt romney waited nine minutes deep into his scintillating stump speech before even mentioning the big news of the day, delivering it like a speech at a funeral. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you know, to this year has come down very, very slowly. of course, even those that have jobs are having tough times. >> okay. but give mr. romney credit because he actually admits the unemployment rate did come down. unlike prominent conservative jack welch who tweeted this morning, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. okay. tuesday he was a ruthless race baiter. yesterday he was a feckless delivery boy. today he's don corleone, and there's more where that came from. congressman west, take it away. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the adm
for this debate whatever romney. which debate comes to your mind when you think, looked down, smirk, grimace. don't look at your opponent. look beseechingly to a 78 year-old moderator to save you. >> i don't know what he was thinking. i don't know where he was last night. i don't know if he had too big of a dinner celebrate his anniversary. lou: what you don't know al gore does. let's hear. former vice president. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust, i don't know. lou: basically is a rendering here. by the way, did you notice he has not lost that deep side that got him into some much trouble. did that make you relive the moment? >> the denver marathon. lou: one thing is for sure, the former vice president has not acclimated to wherever he is. >> it's not like he's at 13,000 feet. i don't think that was the problem. lou: you have to -- what was the problem? and i have to say, i think it is really summed up in two words. governor romney. romne
and this is what a roaring romney sounded like. >> trickle down government is where the president will raise taxes on small business which kills jobs. i want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. this is about good jobs for the american people. >>neil: he swings, slams, scores, way too early to say if the swing states swinging back to the challenger but after last night, the critics say they probably stopped swinging away. larry said the race ain't over but he also is saying for the challenger it is an uphill fight. what do you make of last night and how this changes the dynamics? >> everyone, obviously, just about everyone, from right to left, says that romney won the debate. i gave you a full "a" and i give the president a "c" minus. there was a giant difference between their performance. everyone who was fair was impressed with how romney handled that from going to end. obama was stunned by how well romney was performing. he seemed almost to take a step back and tune out. >>neil: do you think he came in to it is on the clock, the president, to your point he didn't expect t
hunkered down in nevada. >> mitt romney's campaign called tonight's debate a restart of the campaign. this morning on the "today" show, stephanie cutter and former republican candidate rick santorum laid out what both candidates hope to accomplish in denver. >> i think the test for both candidates is who is going to lay out a vision, a details, specific vision of how to move the country forward. i think the candidate that does that will win the test. american people are going to sit at home looking for details. president obama is going to continue to do that. he's been having that conversation for some time. mitt romney has not done that. tonight offers him the opportunity to do that. >> we are not talking about accomplishing a lot. two or three things to accomplish. one is to show he is in command, he's in control, he understands the job of the presidency. he put barack obama on the defense where he should be given his horrific record on the economy and national security. i think he will do that and be tough with the president. i don't think the president will react well to that. i
later it's 7.8%. for both presidents, unemployment generally trended down all the way to election day. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? ncy?eporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. negh unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today he mentioned the drop not once but twice starting in virginia. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. ( cheers and applause ) more americans entered the work errce, more people are getting jobs. >> reporter: around steady rain in cleveland where president esida shared a coat with the supporter who introduced him, he made it clear to a crowd of 9,000 that he understands there's still a long way to go. >> there are too many friends and neighbors who are still lo
romney would do well and the race will turn upside down come thursday morping he said yesterday. >> eric: he was going and some of the other surrogates were saying let's manage and expect low on the debates. but chris christie said the debate will be a game changer. thursday morning clear choice and new campaign started on tuesday morning christie saying it was tough talk for the new jersey governor. >> gretchen: if i were woon on the romney camp i would have him saying that. it grabs head lines and the attitude that people feel is missing. >> eric: where is the proof? you say you arut canning the deficit and create four million jobs. give us ideas. we haven't heard them. >> steve: head line is that the president is lying in his ads. he said they don't hold the president accountable in the main stream med yampt -- media . rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for
romney's plan to the economy. >> he would double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. ashley: we have the added and the facts the campaign conveniently left out. the nfl gets political, pro football owners and players making their voices heard on the campaign trail fulfilling from their bank account. joining us to talk politics and football in just moments. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves to shop online with her debit card, and so does bill, an identity thief who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accounts and stole her hard-earned money. now meet jack. after 40 years, he finally saved enough to enjoy retirement. angie, the waitress at jack's favorite diner, is also enjoying his retirement. with just a little information, she's opened up a credit line, draining the equity in jack's home. unfounately, millions of americans just like you learn all it may take is a little misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft, and no one helps stop it better than lifelock. see, ordinary credit monitoring servi
the top down by mitt romney. >> now, one of the things about barack obama that you know from having worked so closely with him is that sometimes he can be a little professorial, not to put down professors, but in a debate you have to think about the clock and think about the punchy line. is it a challenge for his current team to get him to speak in sound bites? >> well look, i used to joke with him it takes him 30 seconds to clear his throat sometimes. and look, i think -- look there's no doubt that, you know, you've got a very small window of time and brevity is certainly important and as i said earlier, andrea, the president hasn't done these formats in four years. mitt romney has done these pretty recently as part of 20 republican debates, but look, i have no doubt that the president will be well prepared and look, i don't actually think this debate is going to be decided by some snappy zinger or snappy sound bite. i think the american people, particularly the undecided voters that you, chris and mark were talking about, are really looking for these candidates to discuss what they want
. >> bring it up to knock it down. to disavow it. in other words, romney, he had a really wonderful opportunity, remember when rush limbaugh said those hateful things about sandra fluke, that georgetown law student, he had a great opportunity to smack down the fanatical fringe. he didn't do it. it was a missed opportunity. doesn't mean romney agrees with the crazy things limbaugh said but he missed an opportunity to assert himself against the fringe and this is an opportunity for romney, if he's got any sense and he's a terribly bright guy, a very decent guy, but he's a bit of a coward where the right wing is concerned. i do hope, it would help romney, but he should stand up in that debate and raise it himself and disavow attacks from five years ago on the president that seem to me to be driven perhaps by race rather than economics. >> we'll see if more does come out in the next half hour or so. again, we'll continue it. gloria borger, paul begala, boyce watkins, eric erickson, thank you very much. 50 million people are expected to watch tomorrow's presidential debate. what presiden
my body's going to break down. i don't know mitt romney doesn't care about that. zbr and one of the stars of another video in that series is joan raymonday, president of ask me local 127. thanks for joining us. good morning. >> how are you? >> i'm well. that video has more than a million views on youtube so far. the message is pretty harsh. do you think it's fair? >> i think it, richard hayes is speaking from the heart. i think it's more than fair. we think that mitt romney is out of touch with regular working folk like richard hayes. and he is doesn't care about the 47%. he wants to gut public workers. but we're not the problem. to us, the problem is these big tax policies that gives breaks for the super rich. so we just wanted to go and show what a regular working class person picks up trash every day, very hard job. and is representative of the struggles that are going on today for many, many workers in america. and we want to defend the middle class. >> well, when mitt romney was governor of massachusetts, he spent a series of days doing jobs with people who were regular
to be up to the debate. this is a key state, will come down to ohio again. romney needs to ohio to win. tracy: he certainly does. here in cleveland once again, how many? speak of those who have to drive around in town get annoyed with it, but we like it because they are here and up in this state. liz: it is so nice to see you, thank you for not revealing some of those stories. i am a real journalist, a peabody award winning journalist. thank you. thank you very much. >> congratulations with everything. >liz: thank you very much. coming up in the next couple of hours we have the mayor of cleveland, frank jackson, he's a democrat. also a republican working together to make this the fourth highest state for job creation. used to be 48. how did that happen? coming up. back to you guys. tracy: i think you and bill could do the fox affiliate in cleveland. liz: he would outshine me, he always did. tracy: good stuff, thank you very much. we will see the next hour of "markets now." mitt romney wants to repeal dodd-frank. financial stocks are higher today, but they're betting on a whim by presid
